The 350th Anniversary of The Great Fire of London

350 years ago a fire, probably sparked by a baker’s oven in Pudding Lane, led to dire consequences for the city of London. The Great Fire raged through the capital, fuelled by the city’s wooden buildings, fanned by storm winds from the east.

People fled or took refuge in boats on the Thames, watching the flames engulf the city from the water. The Royal Mint’s home was only saved by controlled explosions, bringing down buildings in the path of the fire and starving it of fuel. Many people stored their assets within the Tower’s walls, including the famous diarist Samuel Pepys realising he would soon have to “leave all to the fire.”
